toy jail

we have a system for discipline in our house that has been working for us. it's called toy jail. rather than the extended wrestling match that the popular 'naughty chair' method can involve, we prefer this more relaxed approach. basically, we warn shuggie when she is being "mean" and give her a warning that we will put whichever toy it is that she is playing with at the time into jail. usually, the warning is enough; but sometimes we have to carry through with the incarceration.
